Comments Off on Jerking the Trigger’s BCS APTUM Series: Cable Management Kit

The Beez Combat Systems APTUM PC (plate carrier) system was introduced recently. As part of that release, we are covering many of the available options for this new PC. This installment covers the holistic design approach that Beez Combat Systems (BCS) took with cable management.

 
BCS offers a Cable Management Kit for use with the APTUM. This kit consists of 6 laser cut, Velcro One-Wrap straps. They didn’t just throw some straps at the problem, the APTUM is designed with cable management in mind. In addition to offering this kit, they also designed purposeful mounting points for the wraps into the APTUM. There are mounting points on the front plate pocket and the Overt Back in locations that make sense for routing hydration, comms wires, data connectors, antennas, and more. They can even be used to mount a tourniquet.

M81 Woodland Camo. We got it!!

Comments Off on M81 Woodland Camo. We got it!!

In the beginning there was US M81 Woodland, then MARPAT,UCP, Tiger, then Multicam/OCP and now a reemergence of US M81 Woodland. For some it went a way and for others it never left.

The next few years is set to bring a series of officially US Army issue camouflage schemes that will replace all existing stop-gap patterns. Maybe, just maybe it will be US M81 Woodland so we can go full circle.

The US M81 Woodland pattern is still arguably the most widely-recognized camouflage pattern in the world and still in use by multiple countries and their armed forces, paramilitary forces, police forces, firefighting forces, search and rescue units, as well as other security forces, counter-insurgency/counter-terrorism forces and other emergency services.

ERDL the early version of Woodland was in development around 1948. The official name for the four colour Woodland is known as M81 US M81 Woodland Camouflage pattern It was the default camouflage pattern issued to United States Soldiers, Marines, Airmen, and Sailors from as early at 1981 until the early 2002 when the Marines replaced it with the current digital camo. Other branches have followed with other colors and patterns. So with sixty years of slight pattern evolution there is no wonder why so many still love it.

Because of this love we have brought US M81 Woodland to market. Our AK chest rig Woodland Camo line is available for the AK47 and AK74 rigs. Since we were already at it we decided to make our entire tactical gear line available in Woodland. Plate carriers, BALCS and and other body armor carriers are available in M81 Woodland as well.

Here are a few pics of our SVD chest rig in M81 Woodland:

Comments Off on Aptum Series – Magazine Inserts – Jerking the Trigger

The Beez Combat Systems APTUM PC (plate carrier) system was introduced recently. As part of that release, we are covering many of the available options for this new PC. This installment covers the magazine insert options that the end-user can select based on their mission.

In addition to the obvious use of MOLLE compatible pouches, the APTUM features a “kangaroo pouch” in the front, behind the cummerbund flap area for magazine carriage. This hook and loop pouch can be configured with their APTUM Magazine Inserts to carry up 1, 2, or 3 magazines.

This hook and loop pouch can be configured with their APTUM Magazine Inserts to carry up 1, 2, or 3 magazines.

The kangaroo pouch/insert set up offers some advantages. The inserts can be used to augment the capacity of regular MOLLE compatible mag pouches or they can be used as a primary magazine carriage option that will lay mostly flat when not in use.

These inserts, available in 1, 2, and 3 magazine models, may also be available with other plate carriers.

The Beez Combat Systems APTUM PC (plate carrier) system was introduced recently. As part of that release, we are covering many of the available options for this new PC. This installment covers the 2 front flap options that the end-user can select based on their mission.

The BCS APTUM can be utilized with or without a front flap over the cummerbund. For those who need the additional MOLLE compatible real estate, BCS offers two front flap options. Both front flaps feature BCS’ exclusive laser cut GRID material to keep weight to a minimum and maintain a slick profile when there are no pouches mounted.

Both front flaps also offer quick-detach functionality but the method by which the flaps attach/detach is what differentiates the options. Users can select a front flap that attaches via G-hooks or Velcro.

Comments Off on APTUM™ Plate Carrier Cummerbund Options by Jerking the Trigger

The Beez Combat Systems APTUM PC (plate carrier) system was introduced recently. As part of that release, we are covering many of the available options for this new PC. This installment covers the 3 different cummerbund options that the end user can select based on their mission. All of the cummerbunds below have elastic panels built in for the wearer’s comfort. They are a direct drop-in fit for the APTUM and may also work for other carriers.

Elastic Cummerbund – The Elastic Cummerbund comes standard on the base APTUM PC but it may also be purchased separately. It features elastic construction with 4 sewn in cells on each side that can accept magazines or similarly shaped items. It is lightweight, slick, and versatile.

GRID Cummerbund – This cummerbund makes use of Beez Combat Systems’ GRID material. It features a series of laser cut slots that create a MOLLE compatible grid. The result is cummerbund that can accept any MOLLE pouch but that behaves like a slick cummerbund when not in use.

Retro-Fit Tubes Skeletal Cummerbund – This is the lightest cummerbund of the three. It accomplishes this via a radical laser cut pattern that removes much of the material while remaining very durable and fully MOLLE compatible. It also comes with a panel that is used to adapt the APTUM to use TUBES for securing the cummerbund.

Retro Cummerbund Kit GRID
During this previous year’s 2019 Jamboree hosted by FOXTROT in Easton, Washington Beez Combat Systems demonstrated a variety of tactical gear to active duty military, law enforcement personnel, security contractors and of course responsible citizens.  The Beez Combat Systems Retro-Kit Cummerbund GRID included a full cummerbund with side plate pockets that accept plate sizes 6×6, 6×8, and 7×8 as well as pockets for rigid inserts exclusive to Beez Combat Systems. The tubes demonstrated the benefits and features for quick release situations for trauma scenarios, comfort and ease of access.  The laser cut (GRID) design was especially appreciated for the additional real-estate available as well as confidence in security once load-bearing gear was attached.
As seen in the photos range of motion to the quick release tubes were easily accessible even when additional load-out gear was attached such as the Beez Combat Systems Baofeng Radio Pouch GRIDLOK.  Another benefit greatly appreciated by the demonstration was no matter the position the operator was in whether standing, prone or crouched there was no interference or obstruction to the quick release pull strings located on the tubes themselves.
Baofeng Radio Pouch GRID
The Beez Combat Systems Baofeng Radio Pouch GRIDLOK was highly received at the 2019 FOXTROT Jamboree specifically because of its ability to secure one of the most popular style HAM Radios on the civilian market. In the first photo it is demonstrated that while switching from primary to secondary weaponry the position of the Beez Combat Systems Baofeng Radio Pouch GRIDLOK never obstructs the operators range of motion or movement. For many right hand shooters it is natural to place their communications devices to the opposite side.
Even with the antennae attached the Beez Combat Systems Baofeng Radio Pouch GRID sits comfortably whether placed on the front panel of a plate carrier or the cummerbund itself. While placed on the cummerbund the Baofeng Radio Pouch GRID still allows the operator access to the quick release tubes on the Beez Combat Systemes Retro-Kit cummerbund GRID.
Beez Combat Systems plate carriers are some of the most low profile plate carriers available on the market that are manufactured in the United States and maintain an affordable price for all branches of the military not excluding the civilian market. Many Beez Combat Systems plate carriers and chest rigs were utilized during this event. This brings additional confidence that during such training events Beez Combat Systems plate carriers and chest rigs are accepted among a variety of quiet professionals as a trusted tactical product.
It is with great pride that Beez Combat Systems was able to bring products to the market that are not only trusted with confidence but relied upon for such important training events.
